Phil Manzanera ‘Listen Now’ (Velvet Season and the Hearts Of Gold “Unlimited Financial Resources” Remix)

Now considering my last post was LN-CC based (in fact it referred to the release party for this very record) I know it might appear as though I’m some kind of Dalston shill, hungry for fashion love and a free Yohji jacket or something (actually, I wouldn’t mind that) but nothing could be further from […]

LN-CC Recordings Launch Night 12th December

It was inevitable I guess; LN-CC were always going to take this step officially. Think about who works there: Jonny Nash from Land Of Light, Dan Mitchell from Bad Passion… In fact they’re all total record nerds. So, subsequently you also know that when they do this they’re going to do it with some conviction. […]

Siafu ‘Slunk Dub’ (Bokhari Records)

Now, I don’t know much about Siafu or Bokhari Records, which in this era of media information saturation seems very much the zeitgeist (see Tusk, not to mention my own now defunct Untracked Recordings), so I like the cut of their jib. Vinyl-only, 300 copies; these are concepts that inspire allegiance and anticipation. Their first […]

Zombie Zombie ‘Rocket Number 9’ (Gesaffelstein Remix)

Everyone loves a banger. I don’t care if you’re usually to be found trimming your Bonsai trees in Claremont 56 boxershorts, silhouetted against a life-size mural of Ku Club circa ’86 whilst wearing a poncho made entirely of DJ Harvey’s matted pubic hair… At a certain time, in a certain place, you’ll like a banger, […]

Rising Sun ‘Remember EP’ (Kristofferson Kristofferson)

Rising Sun (aka Steffen Laschinski) follows up his ‘Nostalgia EP’ with a record that has had me sitting in the dark, whiskey in hand and on the verge of tears for a couple of nights now. Now before you yell “you drink too much loser”, or simply the timeless “your tears may stem from some […]

Velvet Season & The Hearts Of Gold ‘Camel Toe Central’ (Lucky Hole)

This is the debut release on Gerry Rooney and Joel Martin’s new Lucky Hole imprint and the first release as Velvet Season & The Hearts Of Gold, which they describe as ‘all about sharing their love of music with the world, having fun and not taking things too seriously’. Well despite all this, this is […]

Nick The Record Pop-Up Store At LN-CC

Nick The Record is one of those names that has been buried deep in my London musical consciousness since the early nineties (he was a regular player at DJ Harvey’s Moist night in Covent Garden), his name is almost a byword for record lust, obsessive collecting and an uncynical love for spreading the (near) perfect […]

Cosmo Interview

Cosmo Interview – AllSaints Basement Sessions from AllSaints Spitalfields on Vimeo. Cosmo (aka Colleen Murphy) is a one woman good vibes generating unit. It’s why David Mancuso first asked her to DJ at The Loft, and it’s why people trust her as a purveyor of deeply resonant music; be it through her excellent record label […]

dBridge ‘City Of Lonely Runaways’

Darren White (aka dBridge) is a Drum & Bass producer right? Wasn’t he in D&B supergroup Bad Company? Yes, I hear you: he’s not a particularly obvious addition to the Heads Down oeuvre. But lately (actually for a while) this man has been delivering some seriously forward thinking analog music. Through his Autonomic podcasts and […]

Mountaineer ‘Golden Chalk’ (Version Idjut)(Leng Records)

These days buying new vinyl can be a heart-wrenching experience. Not because it’s all terribly pressed or the music’s hopeless, but because the very sound of most modern music is not really suited to vinyl. That loud, compressed block waveform is very much the product of the digital age, and something ill suited to the […]
